It helps quench thirst and maintain their appetite (monitoring your weight and food habits is very important for diabetic people) which is why they consume it.

What is better, green tea dip bags or leaves of green tea?

Loose Leaf Tea is almost always better for ALL kinds of tea — teabags usually contain low-grades of tea that are neither as flavorful, nor as beneficial in terms of nutrients and thereby health, etc. Particularly with Green Tea, some of the best/most expensive variants in the world come from Darjeeling, West Bengal, India.
